Blaise Pascal, PenseĆ© 347: “Man is but a reed, the most feeble thing in nature; but he is a thinking reed. The entire universe need not arm itself to crush him. A vapor, a drop of water suffices to kill him. But, if the universe were to crush him, man would still be more noble than that which killed him, because he knows that he dies and the advantage which the universe has over him; the universe knows nothing of this. All our dignity consists, then, in thought. By it we must elevate ourselves, and not by space and time which we cannot fill. Let us endeavor, then, to think well; this is the principle of morality.”

Obama's 2007 Primary Campaign Speech from Daily Caller

This video, from Obama's 2007 primary campaign, surfaced within the last two days. It was published by the Daily Caller. The only publicized version of this speech had been a highly edited transcript by Andrew Sullivan. This speech shows a very different side of Barack Obama, one the media has not wanted to cover. That is why is has taken 5 years for this video to be made public.

For more on the context of this speech, see this link: Video Speech praises Wright

This is another example of the mainstream media not only failing to do its job but actively covering up embarrassing moments in Obama's political life--not delving into his relationship with Jeremiah Wright, Bill Ayres, or his educational history. For context, put it the above next to Wright's famous sermon. Wright was Obama's pastor for 20 years: Obama claimed never have heard anything like this.
